Step 1: Choose your program

Below is some information that will help you understand how the Quebec education system works.

DVS, DCS, BA: What do these mean?

  • The Quebec education system has different levels of schooling: elementary, secondary, college (offered by CEGEPs), university and continuing education.

  • The ITHQ offers programs at the following levels: secondary (vocational programs, DVS), CEGEP (technical programs, DCS), university (BA) and continuing education (ACS, AVS).

The ITHQ school year is divided into three sessions:
